Is peace a goal worthy of pursuing?

It seems self evident that it is, but it seems that this "peace" never arrives. How do we account forthis?

I believe it is selfishness. Peace seems like a great idea until your toes are being stepped on and then the old "right to self defense" kicks in and suddenly peace is a lot less important. If we could learn to actually turn the other cheek, I think there would be less violence. When we think we need payback, we may get it, but then they want their payback, and so on and it never ends. I don't think we should do nothing, but there are other ways to solve problems than killing each other.
